Leviticus 23

23 And the Lord said to Moses, 24 “Say to the people of Israel, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no laborious work; and you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord.”

2 Kings 3

21 When all the Moabites heard that the kings had come up to fight against them, all who were able to put on armor, from the youngest to the oldest, were called out, and were drawn up at the frontier. 22 And when they rose early in the morning, and the sun shone upon the water, the Moabites saw the water opposite them as red as blood. 23 And they said, “This is blood; the kings have surely fought together, and slain one another. Now then, Moab, to the spoil!” 24 But when they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose and attacked the Moabites, till they fled before them; and they went forward, slaughtering the Moabites as they went.[b]25 And they overthrew the cities, and on every good piece of land every man threw a stone, until it was covered; they stopped every spring of water, and felled all the good trees; till only its stones were left in Kir-har′eseth, and the slingers surrounded and conquered it. 

LIFE AFTER DEATH AND THE SPIRIT WORLD

The Spirit World

2. The Many Levels and Realms in the Spirit World

In my Father’s house are many rooms.
John 14.2

Of the nether worlds and heavens has He
created millions;
Men exhaust themselves trying to explore
them.
Adi Granth, Japuji 22, M.1, p. 5 (Sikhism)

There are celestial bodies and there are terres-
trial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one,
and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There
is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the
moon, and another glory of the stars; for star dif-
fers from star in glory. 2
1 Corinthians 15.40-41

The church of the Firstborn… are they into
whose hands the Father has given all things—
they are they who are priests and kings, who
have received of His fullness, and of His glory;
and are priests of the Most High, after the order
of Melchizedek, which was after the order of the
Only Begotten Son. Wherefore, as it is written,
they are gods, even the sons of God… These are
they whose bodies are celestial, whose glory is
that of the sun, even the glory of God, the high-
est of all, whose glory the sun of the firmament
is written of as being typical.
And again, we saw the terrestrial world,
and behold and lo, these are they who are of
the terrestrial, whose glory differs from that of
the church of the Firstborn who have received
the fullness of the Father, even as that of the
moon differs from the sun in the firmament.
Behold, these are they who died without law…
who received not the testimony of Jesus in the
flesh, but afterwards received it. These are they
who are honorable men of the earth, who were
blinded by the craftiness of men.
These are they who receive of His glory, but
not of His fullness. These are they who receive of
the presence of the Son, but not of the fullness of
the Father. Wherefore, they are bodies terrestrial,
and not bodies celestial, and differ in glory as the
moon differs from the sun…
And again, we saw the glory of the telestial,
which glory is that of the lesser, even as the
glory of the stars differs from that of the glory
of the moon in the firmament. These are they
who received not the gospel of Christ, neither
the testimony of Jesus. These are they who deny
not the Holy Spirit. These are they who are
thrust down to hell. These are they who shall
not be redeemed from the devil until the last
resurrection, until the Lord, even Christ the
Lamb, shall have finished his work.
These are they who receive not of His
fullness in the eternal world, but of the Holy Spirit
through the ministration of the terrestrial; and the
terrestrial through the ministration of the celestial.
And also the telestial receive it of the administering
of angels who are appointed to minister for them,
or who are appointed to be ministering spirits for
them; for they shall be heirs of salvation. 3
Doctrine and Covenants 76.54-88 (Latter-day Saints)

When King Solomon “penetrated into the
depths of the nut garden” (Song of Solomon
6.11), he took up a nut shell and studying it, he
saw an analogy in its layers with the spirits that
motivate the sensual desires of humans…
God saw that it was necessary to put into
the world so as to make sure of permanence all
things having, so to speak, a brain surrounded by
numerous membranes. The whole world, upper
and lower, is organized on this principle, from
the primary mystic center to the very outermost
of all the layers. All are coverings, the one to the
other, brain within brain, spirit inside of spirit,
shell within shell.
The primal center is the innermost light,
of a translucence, subtlety, and purity beyond
comprehension. That inner point extends to
become a “palace” which acts as an enclosure for
the center, and is also of a radiance translucent
beyond the power to know it. The “palace”
vestment for the incognizable inner point, while it
is an unknowable radiance in itself, is nevertheless
of a lesser subtility and translucency than the
primal point. The palace extends into a vestment
for itself, the primal light. From then outward, there
is extension upon extension, each constituting a
vesture to the one before, as a membrane to the
brain. Though membrane first, each extension
becomes brain to the next extension.
Likewise does the process go on below; and
after this design, man in the world combines
brain and membrane, spirit and body, all to the
more perfect ordering of the world.
Zohar (Judaism)

All kingdoms have a law given;
And there are many kingdoms; for there
is no space in which there is no kingdom; and
there is no kingdom in which there is no space,
either a greater or a lesser kingdom.
And unto every kingdom is given a law; and
unto every law there are certain bounds also and
conditions.
All beings who abide not in those conditions
are not justified.
For intelligence cleaves unto intelligence;
wisdom receives wisdom; truth embraces truth;
virtue loves virtue; light cleaves unto light;
mercy has compassion on mercy and claims her
own; justice continues its course and claims its
own; judgment goes before the face of Him who
sits upon the throne and governs and executes
all things. 4
Doctrine and Covenants 88.36-40 (Latter-day Saints)
